How To Grow Shallots

------------------------ Sponsored Ads -----------------------

There are several plants that you can grow in your garden that are actually pretty similar to each other. Take for example holland greens are very much like collard greens. Some people often confuse growing shallots, with growing green onions.

What I really love about shallots is that they are easy to grow and they also grow faster than most other vegetables. You can tell them apart from green onions due to their mild flavor, which also has a taste similar to garlic. You will also notice that the bulb itself consists of cloves, same way as you would see in your garlic.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • shallots
  • compost
  • organic fertilizer
  • mulch

Shallots do well in soil that is loose and that drains well. Mix in some good organic compost with your soil before planting your bulbs in an area that gets full sunlight. The best time to plant them is early spring, just after the last frost. Place each bulb at least an inch deep, and cover with the soil allowing for the tips to protrude.

Plant in rows, at least 8 inches apart and keep well watered until they have reached maturity. Applying mulch, is also recommended to help retain moisture. Your shallots should be ready for harvest mid summer to the early fall. The leaves will turn yellow, at which time the bulb should be about a 1/4″ in size. You can also plant in fall for harvest in mid-winter to early spring.
